I am really looking forward to a sail today. I need to move on from my scary sail Tuesday evening when things rapidly got too windy for the gear I was sailing and at one point the only direction I was able to sail was out the river possibly to Melbourne. My second mistake was to start the sail at 7:30pm. Alan got to see my damsel in distress impersonation. It is a mid-day sail for me.

Currently 10-12 knots SW at goon, sun's shining, no water but improving.

Embo's already claimed his car park.

See y'all soon

Yes I am stuck at work today but on the upside I have been sent a photo of me sailing Lagoon on Saturday. It was a great day on the water with plenty enjoying the conditions. Apologies for the neon version of the same photo, did I mention that its quite boring at work? Thanks for the pic Sam.

Great pic, Al. Totally awesome and cosmic. You could do a coke ad with the neon version. Maybe even a Coca Cola ad.

looking for some local knowledge... what's the best wind direction for this spot? I'm in launceston Wednesday and Thursday and looking for a windsurf - reckon it'll be any good on 31st or 1st?

Stormy conditions and great light for photography at Lagoon this evening.

Had a brilliant sail this evening at the Bell Buoy. Few of us were waiting for the wind since 2 pm, but except short squall wind was really light. Around 5 pm others lost their patience and packed, and I cleverly decided to wait for them to leave. Wind picked up around 5:30 and I sailed 'till 8:30 with 4.2 nicely powered. Waves were head to 3/4 mast high and strangely for Bell Buoy quite powerful and punchy, with a lot of big close outs.It seems like tomorrow could be fantastic day at the Bell Buoy, probably sailing all day.

Low head should be good for some sort of seabreeze....check the live weather.
